Yes, sadely the vendor list only link you to the brokered items from the PA. You are correct we have 70 items in the store and more waiting for release.
I think ARTCollaborations is the ‘PA’ that I’ve bought the most items from, although significantly more of them were DAZ O’s than directly. I added a few direct pieces this sale, too, from several of the artists.
I don’t remember how it worked on the old store; if items done by a given artist, but under the DO brand, showed up when the PAs items went on broad sales like this. I somehow seem to recall it going both ways. But my major exposure to DAZ Sales was the March Madness a month after I joined.
I’ve started referring back to the old boards when I see complaints, and realizing that many of the issues people are complaining about also existed under the old store (PayPal freaking out, download problems, shopping cart glitches, etc.). The hope is that while the store still has some of the same problems, that the experience for DAZ, the PAs, and the bean counters has gotten better and more stable under the hood.
And yes, these sales were advertised in the newsletter at the very top, in really big letters. . And I’m glad they were, although my partner is giving me the evil eye. I will mollify them with beautificous renders, although they will argue that our children cannot eat digital illustrations… Food for the heart and soul, I will gamely respond, until I wither under the glares.
Keep on producing wonderful stuff!
